Police have declared an emergency exclusion zone at a unit complex in Juan Street at Alexandra Headlands on the Sunshine Coast.
Police are negotiating with a man who is inside a unit in the complex.
He is thought to be alone.
Residents in the complex have been urged to remain indoors.
Police are not confirming whether the operation is linked to the manhunt for a 34-year-old man who is wanted as part of a homicide investigation.
A major search for Zlatko Sikorsky, 34, has been underway since Wednesday, when a woman’s body was found in a barrel on the back of a black ute found at Staplyton, south of Brisbane.
Police believe Mr Sikorsky dumped the ute and then escaped in a silver 2014 Holden Commodore.
On Thursday, Detective Acting Inspector Scott Furlong said Mr Sikorsky should not be approached.
More to come.
Dashcam footage provided to Seven News revealed a dangerous encounter with a black ute believed to be the car driven by Mr Sikorsky as he fled police. (Channel 7)
